  1. @Kevin I agree with some things in your post, but there are some parts where I wonder if that was what you were really trying to say. You saying that "If for no other reason it helps get rid of that flabby, fat, feminine look, most all the younger generations of males have." seems to imply that a feminine look is associated with being flabby and fat, which I take issue with, as I don't think this is true in most cases. As a girl, I don't mind scratches, bruises, scabs, scars, etc. either, and have a high pain tolerance level, so does that "make a man out of" me!? Nor am I afraid of mud, insects, or have trouble entertaining myself without the Internet (yay birding!!).

    I don't mean to come across as rude, so please let me know if I'm misinterpreting something.

  2. At first glance it felt like a Chipping, but the pale lores also gave me pause. The grayish rump and facial pattern dominated by eyeline suggest Chipping, so maybe just an aberrant Chipping Sparrow?? Chipping x Clay-colored hybrids have been recorded, but with the rarity of Clay-colored in Arizona I don't think that's really a possibility.
